2005 Kia Sorento EX 2.5 turbo diesel
Exceptional value for value for money, and as good as any other SUV, on or off road
One fog light has had to be replaced twice over the years. Otherwise, absolutely nothing has gone wrong or proven to be a concern, let alone a problem.
This is an extraordinarily good vehicle.
On tar, it handles as though on rails. Off road, it is as good as any other SUV, and will go anywhere the others can - at a fraction of the cost of Jeeps, M-series and X-series from their respective makers.
I cannot understand why anybody would pay so much more just for the prestige of a badge, because nothing is that much better to warrant a higher purchase price. This vehicle is exceptional for the money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
